I can understand starting with high attributes (like all 18) or high thieving skills at level 1 to make up for pick pockets and etc not being usable until late game, but why would you want to load an end-game character in Candlekeep when the multiplayer game literally says "New Game".
You people are partially the reason people keep hosting with passwords, these guys that come in Candlekeep while everyone else is level 1 and load a level 10 character with end game items, tell me really what is the point? You're not going to have any real challenge until maybe end of Durlag's Tower or in Baldur's Gate, so tell me why. There's already enough exploits and free/cheap exp and items that starting at level 10 is totally unnecessary.
I just had to rant about this cause it's really beginning to bug me when I try to host publicly and get some people to join but they don't want to start new they want to load end game characters. I even told this one guy start new char or leave, and his response is "You want some items?" No I want to play the game not just spawn end game items high level characters and overpower every single monster in the game...... I seriously don't get it. To me that's not even playing the game, might as well start the game with 25 all stats level 20.
It's one thing to make yourself level 10 instantly for testing spells or stat progression or something, but these people were planning to do a play through with it.
